Optima 2 is mainstream wide web printing press designed for high speed printing, fully automated and equipped with short run features. The number one challenge for printers is short-runs. Therefore we designed Optima for easy changeovers. Optima is equipped with Smart Platforms, web is easily accessible at any point and mainly Optima is equipped with several automated features that minimize time and waste during change-overs. Thinking about print quality, we had to place into right balance the following physical properties – mass (the more the better), rigidity (design which stands strong) and dumping properties (the right materials). The result of this effort is named Advance Bounce Control and is the key factor to highest print quality achieved by our printing presses.
We believe that printed package is not enough in the current world of packaging. Packaging needs more than just a good look. Therefore we developed a flexo press that is ready for implementation of in-line technologies that would bring additional added value to flexible packaging. Optima’s modular design provides a maximum level of press customization to specific needs any time during press life time, not only during first order phase. It allows a flexible feedback to the current market demands and to implement in-line lamination, slitting, perforation, or upstream/downstream units with minimal additional costs. These units bring an additional added value to the flexible packaging, for example over printing varnish or a special coating.
